Mythic oil by L’Oreal Professionnel looks so gorgeous from their packaging that you cannot miss trying them out. I loved the mask from the range and when I spotted this targeted hair care, I picked up. I also picked up the Oil Bar from the same range but more on that later. Read on to know how the Colour Glow Oil fared for me.
Price – Rs 950/- for 125ml
From the Website:
– Haircolor is kept luminous and vibrant

Linseed Oil: used by painters in ancient Persia to enhance the shine of their masterpiece, this illuminating oil adds mirror-like reflection to color-treated hair.
Cranberry Oil: this nourishing oil filled with antioxidants helps protect haircolor from fading by shielding the strand from environmental aggressors like the sun.
UV Filters: protects hair from the harmful rays of the sun to keep haircolor looking vibrant.
For Vibrant Color: lock in beautiful haircolor results by applying 1-2 pumps on damp hair before styling. Reapply 1 pump when hair is dry.

My Experience with L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil:
The packaging is gorgeous and that is what attracted me to the product. The outer pack has all the required information about the product. The bottle is user friendly with a sturdy functional pump dispenser which is protected by a plastic cap. The body is yellow tone, like the Mythic Oil range by L’Oreal Professionnel.
The texture of the oil is just right; it is neither too runny nor too thick. It spreads well on damp hair and only 1-2 pumps are enough for my shoulder length hair. The quantity required for each application is less and hence the bottle is going to last me long.
Coming to the effectiveness of the product, it definitely smoothes out frizz and gives a healthy shine to the hair. But it weighs down my hair and makes it look limp. I am not ready to compromise on the volume and bounce of my hair for eliminating frizz and adding a bit of shine. For that purpose there are a lot of serums out there at a much lower price range.
It smells exactly like the regular Matrix Biolage Serum and the fragrance stays on for a pretty long time, maybe around 4- 5hours. The hair looks tamed and frizz free for good 2 days and surprisingly my hair looks better the following day. it gets back the volume without losing the soft manageable look. Overall I think it is good for people with huge unmanageable colored hair. I find this difficult to work with and hence it will get a low rating from me.
Pros of L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil:
• Targeted to colored hair.
• Nice fragrance.
• Little goes a long way.
Cons of L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil:
• Weighs down hair.
• Gives a limp look.
• Pretty expensive for the performance.
IMBB Rating – 2.5/5
